Our vision is to help create a community of local artists and to promote exhibition and teaching opportunities for all of us and to share in the efforts needed to do so) We also want to help create fun, cultural activities in our town for everyone to enjoy. All visual and functional art media are welcome – sculpting, painting, jewelry design, stained glass, mosaics, cartooning, etc.
There would be a wide array of structured / scheduled classes available for a fee. Some of the artists who have already stepped forward to teach include artists in the following areas: oil and watercolor painting, specialty cards, and fiber arts.
We have partnered with the owner of the Ice House Mall in Downtown, Barrington (Next to Jewel Grocery Store) at 200 Applebee Street for our current BCAC artist gallery.
Barrington Bank and Trust at Hough and Station Streets, has graciously allowed us a permanent galley within the bank. John D. Haniotes, Senior Vice-President, is a contributing member at large and supporter. Thank You John.
Advocate Good Shepherd Fitness Center at 1301 South Barrington Rd., opened their walls of the lower level fitness center for BCAC to exhibit our artists’ work on a rotating schedule. Thank you Advocate Good Shepherd Center.
